Since my break from YouTube I spent some time rediscovering some old hobbies, and I have particularly been taken by something I haven't done in years and that was sewing and embroidery, which I have found very therapeutic.
So much so, it has enabled me to pick up the crochet hook again, and I have been working on some exciting new crochet projects (as well as my very long awaited crochet book of course!), which I'll talk about all in good time. For now, what I am excited to talk about is my plan to share my new embroidery journey with you guys, with a new selection of embroidery video tutorials.
The first two embroidery video tutorials have already been released if you would like join in, and they are for the Raised Fish Bone Stitch and the French Knot to create the yellow flower you see above. You can view them below.
In time this project will work up to a collage of creative embroidery stitches for you and I to sew together. I am not sure how it will plan out or even what colours we will use, but I hope along the way you can join me in this immensely rewarding and therapeutic craft and learn some wonderful techniques with me as your guide.
I recommend Rico Essentials Cotton DK, which splits lovely and holds strong. So far I have used Banana (yellow) and Nougat (brown). Click here to get yours shipped today! Takes you to LoveCrochet.com - Make sure to use the code SAVE20 to save 20% if you spend over £30! (until May 27th 2017)
Lastly, I really just want to say thank you again so much for all your kind messages of support and encouragement over the last few weeks. I have been so touched and quite overwhelmed, and it means so much to me.
Thank you x
